Graham is a professional artist born in North East Essex and is an elected member of The Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Institute of East Anglian Artists. His love of landscape oil painting stems from the adaptability and responsiveness of the medium as well as his family connections to the landscape. East Anglian painters such as Edward Seago, Harry Becker and John Constable are constant sources of inspiration. Most of Graham's paintings are influenced by changing atmospheres and appreciation of nature and the landscape itself whether at home in East Anglia or further afield.
He was commissioned to write oil painting and drawing chapters in a book entitled 'Artists Painting Techniques' published by Dorling Kindersley and was the consultant artist for 'Artists Drawing Techniques' by the same publishers. He writes articles regularly for The Artist Magazine, has been featured in Artists and Illustrators Magazine and is listed in 'Who's Who in Art'. Graham's paintings have also been used on set for the BBC. He is available to give painting demonstrations to art groups and societies, if you would like more information, please use the contact page.
Graham's paintings are collected throughout the UK, Europe and the USA and are also held in the Albert Sloman Library's (University of Essex) permanent collection.
